Moreover, the call for abstract for this event is now open! Any person or organisation working in the field of urban forestry is invited to submit an idea or abstract for a talk, presentation or any other non-commercial contribution to the European Forum on Urban Forestry.

This year the focus of the call is on three themes:

- Theme 2: Urban Forests, Urban Trees and Water
Exploring the role that urban forests and urban trees can play in managing water in and around cities and towns (water buffering, reducing floods, limiting water pollution), including the impact of droughts on tree-based ecosystems.
- Theme 3: Biotic Management aspects in Urban Forestry
Exploring impact of pests and diseases, and the role of adaptive management to limit these impacts.
